I’m from Rhode Island and not many people can say that. I grew up in the shade of the Hasbro Factory, eating clam cakes ‘n chowduh, Dunkin Donuts, lobstuh rolls, and coffee milk. I eat much less now. I hail from Pawtucket (prounouced puh-TUCK-it) and many things you’ve seen on The Family Guy are very possibly true.
Inspired by theatre and art I went to Boston to attend Emerson College and make life-long friends. It was the 80s and we had very big hair, loud clothes with shoulder pads (even the guys), smoked a lot and squinted from behind dark sunglasses at all times of day. I believe there were harem pants worn but I won’t say who wore them.
I then moved to New York City, wore a lot of black, made more friends, stayed up late, had a blast and did tons of theatre with some wonderful companies, among them Ensemble Studio Theatre, New Georges, and our beloved Circle Repertory. I studied with The Groundlings in New York and then Gotham Comedy Improv and performed sketch comedy with the hilarious and fantastic group Kinda Personal followed by the comedy stylings of STEVE along with my brilliant comedy partner, Susan Bott. I’ve performed live sketch comedy in performance spaces and comedy clubs across the land. I’ve also written projects for Lifetime Television and Nickelodeon.
I now live and work in beautiful Los Feliz, California with 2 huskies and a lot of dog hair. Most days I vacuum.
